I want to post a portrait image for a deceased actress

I believe Doris Packer (1904-1979) should have a portrait next to her name in cast lists, like

most other actors of her generation. There is a perfect portrate (IMHO) on her page

at Findagrave.com/ - which should be public domain. If this can be added somehow,

I will provide details and/or forward the image. I am an IMDbPro member (with my

membership already tied to a different actor's page). There must be a way to do this.

Thanks in advance, JJ<<

Hi @gerald_jones_phd -

Unfortunately, we don't currently offer the option to post images for any unclaimed name page on our site.

An IMDbPro membership is required to display photos on filmography pages at this time. So if Doris Packer doesn't have any images on her page this means that her page has not yet been claimed by a valid representative.

IMDb's documentation pages would be much richer (in the aesthetic sense) if portraits could be added to established, prolific actors (such as Doris Packer) who have images posted, but no simple head-shots (portraits) to be used as 'thumbnails' in cast lists. Please suggest to IMDb that they (you) implement a way to make this happen. As it is, we see a list of actors for a particular title in which some little-known people have head shots, and famous stars do not. I am convinced this would be fixed by 'the community' if given the mechanisms. Gratitude, J<
